Test #5 - The Cookie Dough Test

Combining wet & dry ingredients into a consistent mixture in 2 mins, with limited movement of the mixer.

The cookie dough test can be one of the hardest tests for the mixer as the ingredients are dense and stiff.  Generally there is very little liquids in the recipes related to this test.

If mixing ingredients with limited liquid components, such as cookie dough or fruit cakes; it is recommended to use the die-cast metal beater.  This attachment is perfect for dense mixtures.

The Cookie Dough test is for the following recipes: Cookies, Christmas Cakes, fruit cakes, mud cakes
